Remember Tora Bora?
Tora Bora was Osama bin Laden's hideout, located in the mountains of Afghanistan. It sits nestled in a labyrinth of caves and tunnels.
ISIS is now attempting to conquer Tora Bora and turn it into their own headquarters.
But the location is not up for grabs. Actually, for certain nefarious groups it is the equivalent of prime real estate.
ISIS is locked in a fierce and deadly battle with the Taliban in the area of Tora Bora.
If ISIS successfully wrestles the bastion from the Taliban, they will not only have a nearly impervious hideaway - just as bin Laden had, but they will have scored a colossal symbolic victory - because bin laden was ensconced there.
ISIS will have out al Qaedad al Qaeda.
Even in the world of terrorists, it's all about location, location, location.
